The accommodation on board was super, the food was varied, tasty and plentiful. The crew were extremely competent, vigilant and extremely friendly. The experiences on board were varied and there were both sea and land based activities included in the holiday. Most enjoyable

Sometime next year we hope to visit Ninngaloo. We are coming from California and avid divers. and would like to dive in warm water (my husband is allergic to neoprene) and can plan the trip, possibly with others - snorkelers and possibly one other diver, according to best time to dive Ninngaloo. What would be the cost of a trip, and how many days do you recommend? We love muck diving as well as sharks, mantas etc.
